Dungaree Dress

Surya Australia Ethical Cotton Clothing for men and women made in Nepal

"Our dungaree dress is quite the fave with our customers (both online and at pop-ups), and most people who try it on purchase it. It's wide A-line shape means it suits a large variety of body shapes, and the slightly shorter length (than the overall maxi dress) means if you don't like floor length you will wear this comfortably." - Mel, co-founder

Garment Care


All our pieces are crafted using low impact dyes. While this is wonderful for our planet and our bodies, it does mean a little extra care is required to keep your garment in A1 condition, which ultimately means longer lasting.

WASH: Separately for the first 1 - 2 times. You will see a little colour bleeding out in these earlier washes, so take care to avoid washing with lighter pieces. No need to add salt - all our pieces have been pre-washed in hot water already. The mordants in low impact dyes are not as chemically rich as regular dyes though, so they don't 'fix' the same way.

DRY: In the shade always. Our low impact dyes will fade much faster if left in the sun.

DO NOT: Wash in hot water - this will ensure the colour bleeds much more than it should, and your piece will fade faster.

Super comfy lovely material just a beautiful dress

Fabulous dress

Very comfortable and great for warmer or cooler weather, depending on what you wear with it. Very happy to support ethical Australian businesses. Definitely recommend.

Dunja Peric (Australia)
Great buy!

The dress looks super cute with a simple white tanktop in summer and leggings in winter.. I love it!!

Customer (Australia)
Style and comfort for busy Women!

If you love natural fibres, sustainability and your not into those mass produced dresses, that will be lucky to last one season. I highly recommend these dresses, so comfortable even for the busiest Women and can be worn all year round, just team with tights etc for the cooler months. Buy one and you"ll be hooked ! 💓

Wendy King (Australia)
Versatile dress for all seasons.

This is number 3 in my order that was delivered today. Love, love, love it. As i am only 155cm tall the length is perfect. The quality of these items is perfection and i would highly recommend getting behind small businesses in AUSTRALIA. Cant wait to wear all 3 of my items.. I will be a returning customer and will be recommending you to all my friends...Thank you Mel for the lovely personal note.

Katie M (Australia)
Beautiful staple

This is going to be an all seasons dress for me! The quality is excellent and such a versatile style. As some others have said, the straps were a bit long but I was easily able to move a button to adjust this so this is a minor issue to me. The cut and shape are flattering. I hope to buy in another colour in the future.

"I love the Calliope dress so much that I've since ordered one in the oatmeal as well. I just felt so comfortable while wearing it. Looks great with a long sleeve top underneath and some boots for winter but will also work in summer with sandals and a t-shirt underneath."
— Narelle
Love the cut on this gown and the colour is gorgeous. Feel very feminine whenever l wear it …… even my hubby commented how much he liked it ❤️
— Kerry
"Oh my I just love these pants. The material feels light, breathable and gorgeous against my skin. The fit is perfect (which almost never happens for me. Usually too long) waist band holds the love handles in. 😉 I’m ordering my second pair, I’m sure there will be a 3rd pair as well."
— Lynn
"This dress is phenomenal. The material is of quality, the colour is beautiful. It can easily be dressed up and down. I intended to wear this to a wedding but I'll also be wearing it day to day with a cute pair of sandals. This dress is fabulous for different seasons too."
— Natasha
"Absolutely love it. It’s exactly what I hoped it would be the fabric is soft and even nicer after a wash. And the colour is lovely looks great with a white tee shirt."
— Barbara
"This is my third jumpsuit and I basically live in them now. Easy care, easy to wear. Love them."
— Yvonne
"I'm in love with these drop crotch pants - they'd been on my wishlist forever and I wish I'd just bought them sooner. The fabric is lovely - not too thin but not too bulky, love that they have a pocket and the sizing is perfect."
— Teneil
"These pants are the absolute bomb..... I am embarrassed to say I have four colour however given the amount I wear them, I guess I have justified it!! Adore them!"
— Melanie
"Oh my goodness , I now have 6 pairs of these pants. The more you wear them the softer they get. My biggest problem is deciding what colour to wear today. I love love love them."
— Jackie
"Love everything about these, great color, material, fit and really comfy. So glad I bought them. Love them."
— Joanne
"This is my dream item! I have one in both green and red and love them both! I have alternated between them every day since owning them. They’re such a nice fabric, and can cater for a range of sizes using the different buttons."
— Tori
"This shirt is so nice to wear - fits perfectly and is made from a good quality fabric. I am somewhere between 8-10, bought a S and couldn’t be happier. Love this - thank you!"
— Belinda
